Ex-Workington Town player named Wigan Warriors coach

Former Workington Town player Shaun Wane has been unveiled as the new Wigan Warriors coach.

Wane, who has been hotly tipped to succeed Michael Maguire for some time, was confirmed as the new occupant of the hot seat yesterday.

The former GB forward, who was at Derwent Park for Town’s promotion season in 1993/94, before falling victim to a knee injury, has signed a two-year contract, with an option for a third season.

Wane had been a full-time assistant to Maguire, who has returned to Australia after two successful years in charge of the Warriors to become head coach of South Sydney.

“It means everything to be honest, I’ve dreamt about getting this role, I’ve been involved here for over 20 years and I’ve watched Wigan since I was six years old,” Wane told Sky Sports News.

“It’s a great moment for me and my family and I’m going to make sure I give it my all. I’m looking forward to meeting with the players for pre-season in a few weeks’ time.”

Iestyn Harris has been appointed Wane’s assistant.
